I’ve been doing a lot of adulting this summer and it’s wearing on me.
After spending two hours waiting for my car, I was shown that that the rim, on which the tire that had a screw in it last week is mounted, was bent. Coincidence? Probably, but FFS! The Firestone store did a good job, put a bead of sealant on the rim, filled the tire with air, and sent me on my way after charging me only $30.
This repair worked great until about fifty miles outside of Atlanta. While driving through another pocket of torrential rain the TPMS fired yet again. Ten miles of nervous driving later I pulled into a QT an pumped the tire again, and nervously drove home.
Of course the tire’s air pressure was low again this morning as I pulled into Kroger.
I guess I’ll make an appointment with the Mazda dealer, during which I will once again weigh my automotive options…
Tuesday Tale of the Tape: 213.4 pounds (+1.6 from last week’s weigh-in); I’ll contribute this gain to “stress”.
